Origin Wine is pleased to announce the appointment of Ivo Hasler as Global Wine Development Manager in charge of heading Origin Wine's extension into new territories.
Ivo Hasler, formerly Winemaker and Wine Director for D&D in the UK, has over 15 years' experience in the wine industry and has done 12 vintages on 5 continents around the world. This experience will stand him in good stead when he blends the wines from the 2013 harvest for the new brands developed and to be launched from France, Italy, Spain and Australia.

"Brands like, La Folie Douce, Calitalia, Tapas and Camden Park, will benefit from Ivo's extensive experience. Not only does he know the countries of origin very well, he also has vast knowledge of what consumers expect from their wines at every price point," says Bernard Fontannaz, Managing Director of Origin Wine.

Over the past 10 years, Origin Wine has become one of the leading wine exporters from South Africa, with a presence now in 29 countries. 

"We believe that our model, based on innovation, economies of scale, flexibility and reliability will allow us to replicate the success we had in South Africa into others countries," enthuses Bernard.
